Becoming a rabbit owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other hand its challenging because bunnies are sensitive creatures.
But if you really know what you are doing then you will be a happy owner. If you are new to keeping rabbits then its recommended that you learn all you can in rearing these creatures. Once you learn about raising bunnies then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Bunnies are high maintenance creatures which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you could think are not harmful, in fact they can hurt you if you handle them in a way they don’t like. Their back legs are strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you make the decision in raising rabbits they are some things that you need to learn.
– There are various sizes of bunnies. They are little bunnies that may be kept in small houses and are not best for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the rabbits that are raised for meat production and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you have to know that they are vegans, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You can also feed them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa can be provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you need to raise outdoor bunnies then you should be sure you to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protective fence. Bunnie houses should be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood hutches because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Rearing rabbits is not the easiest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just look after them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some little cuddling.
